Workplace Wellness: Instituting a Culture That Values Employees – WEBINAR
Often times, when we think of an organization’s health, financial outlook statements and viability often come to mind. It’s less likely we consider how the organization supports employee health. Creating a culture of wellness means fostering a workplace that encourages and promotes the well-being of your employees. It means implementing ways for employees to be healthier at the workplace and helping them create healthy habits in both their personal and professional lives, which improves their productivity. In fact, a  2015 study cited by Forbes claims that happier employees were more productive in the workplace than their less-happy counterparts. In this webinar, organizational training and development expert, April Schmidt, will discuss various ways companies like you can create a culture of wellness. Certificate of Completion provided. This would be an excellent  session for your CEO as well!
